"The backbiting side of the gay disorder is anything but passive...it is mean to the core...it is terrorist bomb throwing (figuratively) activity like this attack on Loma's mainstream belief."
How on earth is a simple protest letter at ALL, even REMOTELY, like a terrorist bomb? And why do "mainstream beliefs" (which, I might point out, aren't so mainstream anymore) automatically shield someone from any possible scrutiny or protest from someone who doesn't agree with them? This country was founded on the principle that it's OKAY to speak your mind, even when you disagree with other people, and you can still be a nation united.
Sakes, get a grip. Nobody is out to get you, although they undoubtedly think you're pretty paranoid.
Silly TejonTech. I'm pretty sure that terrorists don't bother writing letters. From what I've seen, terrorists usually resort to threats, violence and criminal or inhumane acts almost instantly, and I don't see any threat of such in that letter, either, nor a threat of stalking (which is what I infer from your phrase "either embrace their beliefs or they are after you.")
Do you always use such unnecessarily extreme terminology against everyone who disagrees with you? Are they all "terrorists" just because you're at odds with their lifestyle? In your book, the only people allowed to have free speech or the right to contact the people in their government to protest anything, are people who think/believe the same way as you. Am I correct? If that is the case, then unfortunately for you, the Constitution and common sense both disagree with you.
Perhaps, to get a look at real terrorists and what they're like, you should plan a trip to Central America or the Middle East. Then you can come back here and be thankful that the people you disagree with here generally act very civilly, and you can move on to disagreeing with them in a civil way, yourself, instead of calling them nasty names that compare them directly to violent criminals.
I have to wonder what they think they're protecting anyone from by banning regulated growth and legal sales. No "pothead" I've ever heard of has ever gotten violent, picked a fight, or beaten anyone up while high (on JUST cannabis), unless you count decimating a whole bag of cheetos in one sitting as being violent. Alcohol, on the other hand..... has quite a history. Just take a look at the news to see stories of both adults and children being abused beaten, raped, and murdered by someone who was drinking. Yet we're willing to trust a person's personal judgment with THAT dangerous drug, for the sake of the millions of other people who drink casually and know better than to make it a lifestyle.
Ah, well. If I were to partake, I'd rather grow it myself for myself than buy it from some unregulated backyard/black market operation (which is all that we'll have left, now, unless we take our business outside the county and give that place our tax dollars). At least then I could be sure that it wasn't adulterated with something. Without regulation, there's little or no accountability. All I can think is they're trying to create a situation where something bad can happen, so they can point and go "see! Marijuana kills people and destroys neighborhoods!" without acknowledging that it was actually a lack of regulation and testing, and a proliferation of people who don't know what they're doing/are trying to make a fast buck that ACTUALLY caused the problem.
